Grilled chicken is such a versatile meat to use in so many different ways. This Rosemary and Lime grilled Chicken can be served as is, sliced into a salad for a light dinner. On a burger and just about however else you can think of.

Because this chicken is so tender and juicy, I normally serve it as is with mashed potatoes and sides or salads.

I actually prefer meat (chicken or any other) without a gravy/sauce as I think that changes the flavor of the meat way too much.

This time I cooked mine, once again, on my George Foreman griller and it literally took a few minutes to cook to just the right degree.

Whether you cook these on a griller or over the coals, do brush the fillets as much as you can with the leftover marinade – it really does make a difference.

I think this looks perfect just the way it is! I'd serve just like this with a side or two.
